Automatic Aliases For Certain Content Not Present in CMS

  • Updated

This article describes an issue with Ektron Automatic aliases that are not present in the CMS. In the database for these aliases there will be negative mapping IDs. An example is seen below.

To resolve the issue please follow one of these directions:

  • If there is only a few content items, one can just republish those items in the CMS.
  • If there a lot of content items, then one can either:
    • Use the ContentManager to retrieve and republish these content items.
    • Use the database SP named cms_UrlAliasRegenAll to regenerate all auto aliases.

NOTE - We always recommend before any API or SQL to make a backup of database.
